Another Reading Challenge

Okay, since there is nothing on television this summer, I have been occupying my time by reading two to three books a week. With this in mind, I have joined another reading challenge -- the 1% Challenge.

I was asked to select 10 books from the 1001 Must Read Books Before You Die list, and I have 10 months to complete the books.

The list was daunting, but I managed to select 10 books from several centuries. Please forgive my eccentric tastes. Nothing really fits with me. The books I chose are simply ones I have been meaning to read for years now.

The books I have selected are below:

Life of Pi



The Reader


Like Water for Chocolate


Love in the Time of Cholera


I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings


Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day


The Count of Monte-Cristo


Camilla


Villette


Middlesex


Check in periodically for reviews on the books.

Happy Reading!

You have quite the TBR stack! Love in the Time of Cholera is one of my all time favorites. I swear when I read the last line I wanted to start all over. Don't ask me why!?!

Great book list. You have read some excellent books and chosen 10 others that sound great. I have a few of those on my TBR list right now.

Love in the Time of Cholera is an EXCELLENT read. I am Colombian. The author, Gabriel Garcia Marquez is also Colombian so I read the book 30 years ago for school as school reading. All of his books actually, and they were ALL fantastic. I highly recommend them.

Happy reading!
